Comments
Comments: Bare booted the whole trail except the last 0.1mi up to the summit. Wore spikes for that and kept them on through the switchbacks only cause there was 1 short icy section after the first switchback coming up and I didn't want to think about maneuvering it. Took them off right after, however, and was bare the rest of the way to the car. Didn't see a single soul. Amazing day up there and the views were killer. Still my favorite mountain.
